How To Dress Well – “Words I Don’t Remember”

By Chris DeVille / March 6, 2014 - 11:47 am

Tom Krell has come a long way. His ghostly R&B concoctions as How To Dress Well used to get by on powerful mood and pioneering concept. Now the guy sings like a bird, and his production has only gotten sharper. New single “Words I Don’t Remember” is a lush cyborg sigh that will likely please Krell’s fan base and win him quite a few more admirers. Says Krell, “This song for me is about love, trust, commitment… and what happens to these things and, like, what happens to really real love when sentimentality is so co-opted and ruined. What remains of true love in this world of simulations?” Listen now.
